    Disgraceful speech from LRM. He plagiarised the great Winston Churchill speech ironically about fighting the nazi’s, delivering it in the manner of a hissy-fitting nazi, claiming there were ‘dark forces’ now going to be at work destroying this country.
    The man is an egocentric fool who’s behaviour brings disgrace to himself and the labour party. I think the voters in kemp town extremely naive in voting for him.

    Utterly disgraceful speech by this Corbynista. He should be referring to Corbyn’s Marxist anti-Semitic traits and congratulate the UK on barring the hard-Left from ever inflicting their disgraceful policies upon us. We do not want to be a Venezuela Mark 2 and we do not want to see Palestinian flags waving in the UK. Wake up people of Brighton.
